Bubbi's Kugel

Kugel is hedonistic. It’s definitely not health food. I feel like I’m about to go into hibernation after eating it. The most work you have to do is cooking the noodles. When I make it, I put some of the melted butter on corn flakes and cover the top of the kugel with them. This is based off of a recipe from my boyfriend’s grandmother. We recently moved somewhere cold and we made it for the first time because turning the oven on makes our apartment really warm. That’s what I wanted to emulate in the illustration: comfort.
